Common header files between C compiler and C library

    Are there any header files that are common to C compiler and
    Standard C library ? C complier code would need some header files
    during its compilation. Does the C library also uses some of
    these header files ?

    It is up to each individual compiler as to how it is implemented, a C
    compiler doesn't even have to be written in C so the simple answer to your
    question is no. Of course many C compilers are written in C or C with
    extensions.

    It is up to the individual compiler writers as to what if any standard C
    headers they use in the compiler source.
